Mark Wahlberg Could Be to Blame for Jimmy Butler's Trade Demands

Report Butler calls players-only meeting with Timberwolves Jimmy Butler has heated practice with Timberwolves
| 12 October, 2018, 02:19

Shams Charania of The Athletic reports that Butler called a players-only meeting on Thursday to express his feelings about his current situation to his teammates.

With Miami seemingly in the lead to land Butler (They nearly had a deal done over the weekend before it fell apart), the Clippers will have to look elsewhere to dump players. He would become an unrestricted free agent after this season, and would likely get a five-year maximum contract from interested suitors. I'm being honest with you.

During an interview with ESPN's Rachel Nichols, Butler told his side of the story, saying Towns wanted no part of him.

Butler said he remained in touch with Thibodeau throughout the summer and never backed away from what he had told him.


The catch: Minnesota's asking price is a bit too steep, as Fusaro indicates the Wolves would like to get both Eric Gordon and P.J. Tucker back in a deal for Butler, which doesn't quite jive with what the Rockets would want to do. For what it's worth, Teague said the Wolves "played hard" at Wednesday's practice. Teams angling to trade for the mercurial star should be happy after today's possibly staged outburst because the Timberwolves clearly lost leverage in negotiations. But Jimmy Drama said it wasn't about the money. The Heat and president Pat Riley were "as aggressive as any team in pursuit of a Jimmy Butler trade", per Wojnarowski. I didn't go at those two.

The T-Wolves didn't want this circus to get any more out of control than it now is, so they chose to cancel practice Thursday. Whether he's here or not, we'll just focus on who is here.

And look at that: The same night Jimmy Drama pitched his fit, the Bulls held the Pacers under 60 points in the first half of Wednesday night's preseason game. Woo. "I'm not the most talented player on the team. Yeah, that's who am I", he said.
